OMAHA WOMAN HAS
GAINED 12 POUNDS
farmer Hospital Nurse Tells
of Her Recovery Through
Famous Medicine. '
"After finishing my fourth bottle
of Tanlac I found I had actually
trained twelve pounds," said Mrs.
Arch Allen, of 3322 N. 65th street,
Omaha, Neb. Mrs. Allen formerly
lfved in Evansville, Ind., and was
at 'one time a nurse in a hospital
near that city.
"I had suffered from stomach
trouble," she .continued, "till I was
hardly more than a frame and
hadn't the strength left to lift my
little tea months old baby. My
nerves were so unstrung that I
couldn't raise a saucer from the
table without my hand trembling
like a leaf. My food would sour
on my stomach, causing gas to form
that affected my heart so I could
hardly breathe. I often had dizzy
Spells and violent headaches and
was in so much misery at times I
cojild hardly stand it Sometimes
I would be confined to my bed for
as much as two weeks at a time,
and although I had the best of
treatment and took all kinds of
medicines I kept getting worse in
stead of better.
"I was nursing at a hospital near
Evansville, Ind., when I first heard
of Tanlac, several of the nurses
there had taken Tanlac so success
fully for stomach trouble that I
decided to try it, too. I felt greatly
relieved while on my first bottle,
soon the gas stopped forming and
I could eat all I wanted without
suffering afterwards. The head
aches and dizzy spells gradually left
me and I kept gaining in weight and
strength right along. My nerves
are in better shape now than they
have ever been. I sleep like a baby
and get up feeling thoroughly rest
ed and refreshed. In fact, I feel
well and strong all the time now
nd can do all my housework with
aut the least trouble."

Does your skin chap or roughen easily
In this weather, or become unduly red or
blotchy? Here is a quick, easy way to
overcome the trouble and keep your com

Upon arising, remove the eoating with

discolored or blemished skin. The worn

colized wax simply hastens Nature's
work. Used as required, it keeps the face
constantly free from devitalized scarf

Cold Weather, Intensified by Coal Crisis, Booms Sale
of Marriage Licenses in Face of World Unrest
. Divorce Mill Practically Closed Down.
An extraordinary boom in the
marriage license business in Doug
las county is a development of the
present cold wave and coal short
age days, which Marriage License
Clerk Stubbendorf calls to the at
tention of a shivering world.
Twenty-two couples were licensed
to wed Monday. Up to noon yester
day a dozen more had written their
nanie with numb, lingers and hur
ried away to the minister's house.
"I can't explain it except on the
theory that two can keep warm
much better than one," says Mr.
Stubbendorf, "I never saw such a
boom 1 in licenses right after
Thanksgiving time. Usually all
those intending to get married do
so before the holiday and there is
a slump in the demand the next few
days." .. .
In Good Style for $5.
"You may not be able to get coal
but you can get married for ap
proximately $3 this including $2
for the license and a stingy $1 for
the clergyman or magistrate," said
County Judge Crawford. "For $5,
the price of a couple of meals for
two, the thing can be done up ijt
good style with a decent fee to the
officiating clergyman or magis
trate." Rev. Charles W. Savidge, the
"marrying parson," who. has mar
ried 5,000 couples, comes forward
with many quotations from the
Scriptures' to show that these are
the ''times of trouble" prophesied
in Old Testament times.
What this has to do with marry
ing, some people will not be able
to see and others will. Oh, yes,
they will. Anyway,, Rev. Mr. Sav
idge continues thus:
"But there is one thing to which
I desire to call especial attention.
"Business of different sorts will
be seriously affected, but there is
one line that will continue good,
and that is marriage.
"In the time of the- flpod they
married and were given in marriage
till they were all swept 'away. I
have an idea that after No.ah went
in the ark and God shut him in
that the marrying preacher of that
day stood in the swirling waters
and married his last couple.
"And it will be so in this day. It
is really surprising that no times
are. so threatening, no weather so

the coal shortage. Midweek meet

are to be held In private homes.
There are many who had
been troubled with indigestion
and constipation for years that
have been restored to health by
Intense, no prospects so dark, that
will deter or put a damper on this
business of mating and homemak-
"People are determined to marry,
although the weather is excessively
cold and although a calamity is
threatened with regard to fuel."
To make still more -amazing th
mysterious psychological relation ot
cold weather, lack of coal and mar
riage, the divorce mill has come
almost to a'stop the last few frigid
days. Only one decree was grant
ed yesterday in , divorce court,
whereas there areu sually from six

Chief of Visiting Nurses

bear in-mind that a per cent of the
receipts from the sale of Red Cross

"Our association," Miss McCabe
said, "is attending to 300 cases ot
tuberculosis in Omaha and we have
been maintaining one nurse forthis
part of the work. We should havj
two more nurses for this work. We
trust that our friends will liberally
patronize these Christmas seals and
thus help us, as well as the Ne
